Lake Charles and Southwest Louisiana Christmas light displays 

  • Lakeshore Drive along the lakefront from Clarence Street down Lakeshore Drive to the Port of Lake Charles is a must on your route.
  • While you are downtown make sure to check out the grounds of the Lake Charles Civic Center with a huge light display and you can even rent a horse-drawn carriage and take a ride to look at the lights.
  • Prien Lake Park on West Prien Lake Road is also beautiful.
  • Also in Lake Charles check out Alder Street, East Calcasieu Drive, and Canal Street right off Country Club Road.  The part of Canal Street where the house is located is across Country Club Road across from the Market Basket shopping center on Country Club Road.
  • There are also some beautiful lights on Ruth Street, R D Ellender Road, Highway 90 by Kim Street, Sonoma Drive, and Christmas On the Hill on West Jim Pickens Road. All of these are located in Sulphur or Carlyss.
